“Don’t push me around! Limiting the causes and consequences of bullying”

October 24, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Join us for an engaging discussion with Canadian health research experts about the impacts of bullying on our children.

Bullying doesn’t just happen in the schoolyard – and it isn’t a harmless part of growing up. People have been known to emotionally or physically hurt others for any number of reasons, including their sexual orientation, ethnicity, appearance or health problems. A 2009 study showed that at least 1 in 3 Canadian adolescent students have reported being bullied. According to Statistics Canada, cyberbullies have tormented 73% of their victims, aged 18 and over, with threatening emails or instant messages. Relentless bullying can be a factor in a victim’s decision to commit suicide. So what can be done to stop this problem? What motivates people to be bullies in the first place? Can legislation against it actually make a difference? Come join health research experts for a discussion about the scope of bullying, its negative effects on the victim as well as the tormentor, and steps that should be taken to try to rectify the situation.
